I'm always amused when tablighees tell us about the meaning of Arabic words when they cannot speak read or write Arabic right our dear scottindallas and i call this delusions and ignornace

No, a Kufr is someone who rejects god/faith, any god/faith.

Really? well let us see what an Arabic dictionary says

http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&lang_name=%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A8%D9%8A&word=%D9%83%D9%81%D8%B1

So can you tell us what it says?

Oh darn it I forgot that you do not know any Arabic

For the readers a kafir as was established by no other than Ibn Taymiyya to be one of the following

1. Jews and Christians and Zoroastrians and Hindus and Buddhists and Jain and atheists and polythiests

2. Muslims that celebrate Moolid el-nabi or the birthday of Muhammad

3. Muslim rulers that co-operate with an enemy that is supposed to be a foe of Islamic imperialism

So do you celebrate moolid el-nabi our dear scottindalls whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam? if so then congratulations but you are a kafir too

It specifically DOES NOT include Jews, or Christians, Zoroastrians.

Where doe it say that in the dictionary you tell us and if so then Jesus must be Allah and Zoroaster must also be Allah and the ethnic God of the Jews must be Allah

Then congratulations our dear scottindallas but Jesus and the ethnic God of the Jews and Zoroaster must be Allah

Your claim is bogus

see? It is easy to BS right?

These people are alternatively described as "people of the Book" and Muslims are repeatedly commanded to protect them, and allow them to practice their faith. Islam grants more rights to women and minorities than what are given in the Bible.

Hello: no one has a clue what does the term ahl al-kitab really means and are you aware that in India where you came from Hindus were also regarded as part of ahl al-kitab so the Muslims that invaded India and killed 90M of your ancestors can collect the mafia tax known as al-jizya and al-jizya is better than a dead kafir

There are many versions of Islam and Sharia. The Arabian peninsula practices a more severe or austere version of Islam than is found among it's neighbors in Egypt, the Levant, Iraq, or Jordan. Garrison Keillor makes fun of another austere culture in Prarie Home Companion, the Scandinavians, particularly Norwegian and Finnish Lutherans. Some people make fun of Texans. Harsh climates tend to create insular cultures. The North Africans and Lebanese love Music and partying. Many do this in Hijabs some in sexy dresses and skirts.

Now here is your lesson for today

The Arabic word kafir كافر is a loan word from Syriac ܟܦܘܪܐ or Kapura which is Arabized as kafir

Etymology

From the root ܟ-ܦ-ܪ (IPA: /k-p-r/) related to denying. Compare Arabic كَافِر (kāfir) and Hebrew כּוֹפֵר (kôᵽēr).

[edit]Pronunciation

  • IPA: [kɑforɑ(ʔ)] (singular)
  • IPA: [kɑfore(ʔ)] (plural)

[edit]Noun

ܟܦܘܪܐ m (emphatic plural ܟܦܘܪܐ ; feminine counterpart ܟܦܘܪܬܐ)

  1. pagan, heathen
  2. unbeliever, infidel
  3. negator, denier, apostate

So I do not see anything about your bogus claim and the word kapura (Arabic kafir) means non Jewish and non Christian and here is the meaning from a Syriac dictionary

phonetic: kapura  an infidel , someone not holding the faith , a non-Christian , an unbeliever / a misbeliever / a miscreant , one opposing the authoritativeness of the Christian religion , a heathen , a pagan , a polytheist

So congratulations our dear scottindallas but you are a big time kafir too

See what happens when your so called prophet borrows terms from far superior civilizations and then incorporates them in his little book without knowing what the word really means? and then a lost tablighee like you come and dish out bogus information and make a fool of himself
